An materialist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned
to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike
up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read Manusmṛti, replied to the total
stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God,
or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death, and how religions destroy organized society?" as he smiled smugly.

"Okay," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask
you a question first. A Roman, a Chinese man, and a Muslim come from the same stuff. Each group conquers the natural world and sets up a thriving civilization. Yet as each group loses touch with its spiritual origins, it succumbs to weakness and idiocy. Why do you suppose that is? I'm looking forward to hearing your petty materialist hypothesis. Have you read the Vedas? Have you read Plato? Have you even read the Bible?"

The materialist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence,
thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which
the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss
God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book.

Naw way. Other historians and even artists of his time tried depicting him in their artwork, but were told "No." apparently by him. Later historians and fathers of the church either discussed this saying it was to be humble or that those artisan and historians said he said "To keep the grace of faith for my people" (or something along those lines). He would no less sit with us in discussion here for the same reasons.

It'd be better if you could buy loli seeds and grow them yourself, Harvest Moon style. Depending on which loli seed you buy, the lolis you get would have different personalities. So could could buy tsundere seeds (should be watered daily no matter how much she protests about not liking it), genki girl seeds (requires lots of sun to grow), dojikko moe seeds (prone to toppling over, do not place on balconies), yandere seeds (releases allelochemicals so that she'll be the only one for her onii-sama, shouldn't be planted near other lolis) and so on.

Or you could buy regular flower seeds and treat them with a special fertilizer that was mailed to you from an unknown source in order to turn them into little girls. You'd start with simple, easy to grow plant girls like marigold-tan or chamomile-tan and later advance to much more needy plants like rose-tan (who'd be gentle, elegant and obedient; but she'd also be sickly and very prone to disease in her first few years) or a variety of orchid lolis (who should be haughty drill-haired ojou-sama type girls and demand to have their own "mansion"/orchid house).

"I had a really hard day today" Said Sayaka, sitting down with a "pomf" and a frown.
"What's wrong? Are you hungry, honey?" Asked Kyouko, offering Sayaka a small bag of chips.
"No, I just got into a fight with Mami again. She says we don't care about Madoka any more because we spend so much time together. But I told her, we're in heaven, and Madoka will join us someday too! Being a magical girl, no, living was awful! It's so much happier here!" She fumed.
Kyouko sat up, rubbing Sayaka's back gently, nipping at her neck with soft kisses, producing a box of pocky, pushing it into Sayaka's mouth.
"Hush, I'll make everything better. After all-I'm your girlfriend, and this is heaven-no need to get so mad. Mami is only worried about Madoka."
"Yeah, you're right..." Sayaka blushed.
Kyouko laid on her belly, looking back at her girlfriend expectantly. "I know what will make you feel better, Sayaka...." She said in a soft, low voice.
Sayaka smiled, laying down as Kyoko dragged her jean shorts down her legs, exposing her lightly-brown stained underwear. She unjammed her panties from her crack with her fingers, letting out a long, slow fart, letting the warm gas fill Sayaka's nostrils.
"K-Kyouko...I'm so lucky to have you..." she murmured, nuzzling the stinky buttcheeks.

Just being a trip makes you a lightning rod no matter what.

In an environment where we're expected to all be equals, where we mutually gave up on biasing each others' discussion by trying to save face/not step on toes with e-fame names.. someone who actually manually goes and gives themselves a name in this environment, is asking for trouble.

Generally the notion that you think you're important enough to knight yourself a tripfag carries an inherent conveyance of bias, namely that the trip feels he's a unique enough snowflake that every thing he says is important enough that you know he said it. Unless a trip is actually truly important for something besides conversation, it'll always wind up just redundant/useless/asking for trouble.

Every "good" trip goes bad eventually because as the years go by and they occasionally say something you'll disagree with, you'll remember those times a lot more than all the other times he said something that didn't raise any flags. I used to like Yutanpo for example, years ago... slowly but surely time erodes, and now I don't.

I just had a dream last night that I was riding my bike down some back woodsy road in some forest. Then it came to this open field where I found a trailer like house. I went to the house and saw that Nitori lived there. She invited me in and she was quite shy (but she sounded like she wanted my penis)

We were talking about some things trying to make conversation be cause we were both kind of nervous.

I then went into her closet and found her dirty close hamper basket thing. I then took a huge deep breath and took in all of her sweet musky scent that is Nitoris dirty close. Then I started to piss on her dirty close (most likely because I had to pee irl and it was represented in my dream) I then saw a pair of her used underwear with a little brown staining on them and was about to make for them to smell.

Nitori came into the closet and saw what I was doing. She knelt down and started to hug me and says she understands and she nick named me Shy Bear.

I am sure there was more to it after that but the rest is getting hazy now. I JUST woke up so it was fresh in my mind and i did not want to forget

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Bastard Sword" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.

Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind.

Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.

Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? Katanas are simply the best sword that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:

>> No.11158917

(One-Handed Exotic Weapon)
1d12 Damage
19-20 x4 Crit
+2 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

(Two-Handed Exotic Weapon)
2d10 Damage
17-20 x4 Crit
+5 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

Now that seems a lot more representative of the cutting power of Katanas in real life, don't you think?

tl;dr = Katanas need to do more damage in d20, see my new stat block.
